This weekend was like any other bbq weekend. There was an exception. Ms. Goofy was out of town on a sister retreat and we did not sign up to judge any bbq this weekend. You know, I just could not stay away. I went solo and visited the Dixon Grillin & Chillin, Car and Truck show. This is a yearly event that brings out the locals for a fun filled day in downtown Dixon California. Dixon is a rural town that still has a small town feel. It made for a great day to have a bbq contest and fun event.
There just so happened to be a small farmers market held in the middle of the event. This was a great place to pick up some vegetables, flowers or bbq sauce to bring home.
Today the bbq contest was ribs only. I do not know the particulars because I was only an observer. I noticed a couple of familiar teams and our friends Jack & Gina from Big Shot bbq team were there. I also notice some pretty enthusiastic backyard teams testing their mettle.
This one team Los Borrachos Cochinos. (translates to The Drunk Kitchen) were having a lot fun. They were passing out free samples of 'Burnt Ends' made with pork belly. Oh, my! They were a treat. Imagine very tender smoky sweet bacon cubes that melt in your mouth to experience these treats.
I was not judging today so I needed a snack. "Good Ol Boys Rolled Tacos" looked popular, so I decided to give it a try. This was a hamburger filling rolled up in a flour tortilla and deep fried. It was served fresh out of the fryer. It had just the right amount of hot grease and salt to make an appetizing little snack.
We had a car show today and it was huge. A lot of chrome polish was used today. The sun was bright and hot to make these vintage and custom cars shine.
This was a festival that had something for everyone. Music, food, beverages, pony rides and vendors selling all sorts of Knick Knacks. I did not judge today but had a good time.
